Now admins have all the control and overview of the clusters and how they want to configure it, while also freeing the developers from this struggle of working with K8s directly.
Shipa lets Developers focus on delivering applications, not Kubernetes manifests or other technicalities. Instead, the DevOps have just to predefine the controls and guardrails and provide a highly efficient workflow across the teams involved.
Shipa enables simplicity of the development workflow. I think Shipa is a very unique product so not really sure I can compare it to anything else.
As a developer, Shipa enables me to think in terms of applications, not K8s objects or their YAML-based manifests.
- App Complexity
- Moving between VMs, cloud instances, Kubernetes, Terraform, GitOps, and others creates friction between DevOps and developers since each infrastructure component requires a different application management model.
- Policy Enforcement
- Securing microservices applications deployed through various infrastructure tools is complex. GitOps, Terraform, Pulumi, VMs, Kubernetes, and others each introduce a different way to enforce application policies.
Shipa implements a standard AppOps model across different components, such as Terraform, Pulumi, Kubernetes, VMs, ArgoCD, and more.
Have the freedom to move between different infrastructure tools, adopt GitOps, and address specific tool requirements from different teams and applications while keeping a standard application operating model across them and maintaining the developer experience.
Define application policies as code and in a standard and straightforward definition that different tools can use, such as Terraform, Pulumi, Crossplane, CI/CD pipelines, GitOps pipelines, and more.
A standard application policy model helps you ensure that applications deployed across various infrastructure and tools comply with the defined policies, give you clear audit reports, and get you out of writing complex and tool-centric rules.
Free up the DevOps team by enabling developers to easily deploy and manage applications across multi and hybrid environments easily.
Manage applications post-deployment, access application lifecycle information and security audit reports, connect applications to incident management tools, and see in-depth details on the application’s dependency maps and service-to-service communication, all from Shipa’s application portal.
